Re: Konica 50cpm color madness

Yeah we are a tri-line dealer and carry the Konica Product as well as Ricoh and Toshiba which gives us a nice variety. This Konica Color Force 50 is probably the best quality I have seen off a 50 ppm color system. It is a production system though. Konica is warning us not to sell it unless the customer gurantees a minimum volume which has not been set yet. So you need to take into perspective the 5-6 cents per page is all relative to volume as well. That is service, supplies, and anything else

if these could be solutions at first until they get a handle on what docs. they will be saving, how much they will be saving (in docs), and how much space they will need to save these docs. Also, Art, do you think we can get Ricoh to do an on-line demo of these (and possibly other systems) for us like Doculex did? All replies welcome! Ted

WOW GBC unit $15,000!!!. I was told MSRP of $7000.00 and $835.00 per die. Ricoh will stock the 6 most common dies and others you could get from GBC. I wonder what the real price will be. I never expected it to be a "cheap" add on but I hope It is less then 15,000.00

As Jim mentioned we are working with prelimanary data but... As I understand it you can purchase the dies seperatly. You can have 4 in the machine at any one time. Ricoh will stock 6 dies. THe 6 dies are what Jim said plus spiral, and a 3 hole Punch.

Re: 1060 v Minolta Di551/Konica 7155 need help!

Thanks very much for the advice from all who responded to my call for help - the law firm is behaving as if the 1060's advantages are not important as they do not do much in the way of two sided, 5 cpm more is not that much faster, the doc server won't be used, etc. The Minolta is sort of like a 1055 with scanning would be and is leaving me with a price disadvantage. Still looking for the silver bullet to do it in! Will let you know how it turns out.

Got to see the 2090/2105 in action yesterday at a Ricoh office. Many nice improvements. Also got to see "secret spy photos" and information on the GBC Punch unit that will be available mid year. One other big improvement is having some the SR90 controls in the display panel of the 2090. It will automatically set the paper guides and such. Looks pretty good.
